           Summary: Small combobox menus needlessly scrolling.

          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux

(probably the wrong component selected for this bug, but I cannot find any that

A GTKComboBox will shift the offset of its menu so that, on selection, the mouse
will be over the last selected item.  If the menu is near the top, then it is
likely that some of it will go over the top and the scroll arrows will appear. 
On small menus, this just increases the time it takes to make a selection when
the menu could easily have just been aligned at the top to show all items,
regardless of the last selected item.

>From the today screen, go to the applications menu.
In the top searchbar, select the bottom entry ("All").
Go to select another entry from the search bar.  The bottom entry will be at the
top, and the rest will be above it, offscreen and accessed by scrolling.
The menu should be aligned to the top, so all values are visible and no
scrolling is needed.
